SHOWS NEED FOR, AND CONSTRUCTION OF PIPELINE FROM BIG RAPIDS TO DETROIT, MICHIGAN. GOOD OUTDOOR CONSTRUCTION FOOTAGE, ALSO SHOTS OF GAS USERS.
• 9:50:54:21- 9:51:04:02
Men move furniture into a new home which is identical to the dozens of small, red brick houses surrounding it. A woman stands outside one of the houses. Looks like a (lower) middle-class housing development.

• 9:52:18:15- 9:52:26:27
More post war population boom housing developments.
Men work on new houses in a newly developed community. All the houses are identical (small, red brick).

• 9:53:06:18- 9:53:18:19
Nice image of a cylinder container holding gas. It is silver with red checkers at the top with what looks like a little water tower at the top. Small airplanes move around it.

• 9:53:39:14- 9:54:40:04
Pan of large gas / coal (?) plant. We view containers of gas, buildings, tubing, etc...

• 10:02:03:05- 10:02:17:12
Good shot of large trucks being loaded with long links of piping by a crane. Beautiful storm clouds move by.

worth noting: Nice image of men inserting pipes into the ground—an A&P supermarket stands next to them. (10:10:19:03)

Another little bit of this movie. AB clips, no sound.. rather bizarre hodgepodge of images here. So if you can tell what the connection of someone looking for a place to live, laying pipe and a visit from the milkman, there's a prize waiting for you.

............for storing gas. This one stood right in the angle of Detroit City Aiport. I lived about 2 miles away from it. Apparently later on after this was shot, they installed big neon letters on it that said "Gas Is Best!" They ceased using those things by the mid 50's and they tore it down in 1966 or so.
